Poppy Sweeting is one of the four companions that get their own quest line in Hogwarts Legacy. In Poppy’s quests, you will be focused on helping beasts. The first Poppy quest becomes available after you complete the story quest Fire and Vice, and the next few quests follow the aftermath of taking the dragon egg. Surprise Meeting starts the second half of Poppy’s narrative. The guide below goes over how to trigger Surprise Meeting and how to complete the side quest in Hogwarts Legacy.
How to Start and Complete Surprise Meeting in Hogwarts Legacy
This side quest will appear once you wait after completing A Poacher’s House Call. In addition to this, you must complete the following two quests before continuing with Poppy’s storyline.
Once this is done, you should get an owl mail from Poppy asking you to meet her in the Forbidden Forest. It’s here that you and Poppy will speak with the Centaurs and get the attention of Dorran, who gives Poppy the clues she needs to decode the location of the Snidjet. Once you finish this conversation, this quest will end without a marker, leave the area and use your map to move time forward to start The Centaur and the Stone.
